How do I know what materials are used in my jewelry?
The materials used in each product are listed on the individual product page.
What is Sterling Silver or 925?
Fine silver (99.9% pure) is generally too soft for producing large functional objects. Therefore, silver is usually alloyed with copper to give it more strength.
Sterling silver is an alloy containing 92.5% by weight of silver and 7.5% by weight of other metals, such as copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925. This alloy preserves the elasticity and beauty of the precious metal.
Other metals can also replace the copper, most often with the intent to improve various properties of the basic sterling alloy, such as reducing casting porosity, eliminating firescale, and increasing resistance to tarnish.
What is Cubic Zirconia?
Cubic zirconia (also known as CZ) is a synthetic crystalline substance used as an alternative to diamonds. This man-made material is colorless, hard, and flawless. Its popularity stems from its diamond-like brilliance and clarity, low cost, and overall durability.
What is Rhodium?
A member of the platinum group, rhodium is a shiny, white metal that is highly reflective, durable, and expensive. It is often used as a hardening agent for platinum. In jewelry, it is plated on other metals to increase luster and prevent tarnishing.
What is Gold Plating or Gold Electroplating?
Gold plating is a method of depositing a thin layer of gold onto the surface of another metal (such as silver or copper) by chemical or electrochemical means.
Will Sterling Silver tarnish?
Chemically, silver does not react with oxygen or water at ordinary temperatures and it does not tarnish easily. However, the other metal in the alloy (usually copper) may react with oxygen in the air. As the silver's purity decreases, it is more likely to corrode or tarnish. Although sterling silver does tarnish, our rhodium-plated jewelry provides maximum durability. Our jewelry is also easy to clean and care for.
What makes Sterling Silver tarnish?
Common chemicals in perfume, hairspray, soap, and lotion will make rhodium tarnish permanently. Stay away from chlorine and other bleaches and do not wear sterling silver jewelry while swimming. Rhodium-plated and Gold-plated jewelry will rust quickly if it gets in contact with those chemical substances.
What is the best way to store my jewelry?
To keep tarnishing to a minimum, we strongly advise that you store each of your silver jewelry separately in dry, air-tight spaces, such as ziplock bags or a jewelry box. Keep your jewelry pieces from rubbing against other items when you are not wearing them. Although rhodium and gold plated silver jewelry is scratch resistant, it isn't scratch-proof.
Can I write a product review?
Yes! To write a Product Review, you must have a registered Balara Jewelry account. You must also have purchased the item you would like to review or received the item as a gift.
